Trivia

A rumor later circulated that the film was originally written as a third entry in the Bill and Ted series but re-worked after the two main stars, Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves, declined to appear. See more »

Goofs

In "the book scene", when Bud is lining up in the hallway the camera cuts to Doyle and we can see he is standing with the coffee table lined up right next to him with no room to pass him. As Bud hits him, the camera changes to a view of him from behind, and we can see Bud has plenty of room to get past Doyle as the coffee table has moved. See more »

ugh.
10 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the few movies I couldn't even watch in one sitting, I had to split it up into two. I always despised Pauly Shore, but now I really really can't stand him. There are a few moments where the jokes are relatively funny, but they are few and far between. The only neat thing about it was the overwhelming mid-90's pop culture melting pot, which appealed to my nostalgic side, but even that was squashed by the overpowering obnoxiousness of Pauly Shore. Stephen Baldwin is slightly less annoying than Shore, but not by much, and its sad, because I've seen him in other roles which he played incredibly well. I usually find at least some redeeming features in 'stoner' movies, or even like them-- (the Clerks series, Bill and Ted, etc.)-- but this movie is just really bad. The supposed protagonists are so idiotic and obnoxious that its painful to watch.
